Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

I need to rent/borrow a single tap jockey box for this weekend.

I'm in Melb.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Try a local U-Brew-It or similar. They hire them out (well ones near me do - but i am in perth).

Cheers,

Any pubs that sell full kegs should have one. A lot normally let you borrow for free when you buy a keg of XXXX etc but maybe you can find one that will let you borrow for a small fee?

For the prices I've been quoted from a few local shops, I might go with the coil from kegking and make my own for not much more. I already have a spare esky and tap.

Thanks for your input everybody!

Pat, how did you go with this,

I use one of these on my portable setup (with a perlick 545 tap)
http://www.brewmart.com.au/brewmart-shop/catalogue/?detail&ItemID=1877&SZIDX=0&CCODE=16755+C109&QOH=8&CATID=236&CLN=1&pageCount=2

Works a treat.

Just put the keg in some ice and you will be right i reckon.
As long as the keg starts cold and you have a container big enough (like a green bin from bunnings? keep receipt and return it after use?) should be right with a few bags of ice.

I use it with a 9L keg in an esky with the lid cut open. Too easy.

May not be too late to ring your local HBS and see if they stock them?

Cheers,
D80

I'm not using mine this weekend, you can use it. It's in Shepparton though. Probably don't want to be near there...
